A gas cylinder exploded at a Russian laboratory where strains of smallpox, anthrax and Ebola are stored.

The blast at the State Research Centre of Virology and Biotechnology in Koltsovo, in the Novosibirsk region of Siberia, blew out windows and caused a fire.

The explosion happened on the fifth floor of the six-storey building during repairs to a sanitary inspection room, a spokesperson for the centre, known as Vector, said in a statement on Monday.

The fire, which covered 30sqm of the building, was later extinguished.

No biohazardous materials were present in the room at the time, the spokesperson said.
